Galatea, Inc.: “Mexico” – Plans to Begin Soon

Galatea, Inc. © Paul Hair, 2017.
Galatea, Inc.: “Mexico” was the first story set in the Galatea universe that I started writing. And it might be the first one I start publishing. The outline is basically done and I can probably start writing and publishing the manuscript serially. As the title suggests, the plot involves Mexico—specifically a threat from Mexico with the protagonist working to thwart it from his undercover status as a scouting and resourcing agent for the modeling organization, Galatea, Inc.

Galatea, Inc. is a universe where women are everywhere. What I mean by this is that female characters will normally outnumber male characters. People complain about there not being enough female characters in storytelling. So I resolved this complaint by making the protagonist (David Warfield) an undercover private intelligence operative at a modeling agency. The agency is called Galatea, Inc., with various locations for various purposes in Manhattan, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere. Most of Warfield’s bosses and coworkers are females (in the overt modeling business of Galatea, Inc. and in the covert security business of Galatea, Inc.). So he’s surrounded by women and subsequently the plot is filled with them.

In the first story, Warfield is on a mission to figure out what the threat from Mexico is and how he can stop it. Along the way he’ll face friends and foes. Many will be of the female persuasion; others will not be. And through it all the reader will be introduced both to his world and the universe of Galatea, Inc. at large.

I’d like to begin publishing this serial story as soon as possible. Yet I don’t know when that will be since Mortal Gods: “HVT” is taking precedent. But when I do start publishing “Mexico,” the serial publication might be more sporadic than “HVT.” Whereas “HVT” is scheduled to have a serial installment published weekly, I might publish the serial installments of “Mexico” on an irregular basis (sometimes weekly, sometimes biweekly, and so forth).

Stay tuned to Liberate Liberty (here and on my Facebook page) for more on when I will begin publishing Galatea, Inc.: “Mexico” here at Liberate Liberty and simultaneously at Liberty Island Magazine.

And as always, if you’d like to see original, commissioned artwork for it (instead of my creations), you can help towards that end by purchasing my published books and by contributing to me for my published work at Liberty Island Magazine through the PayPal link that is posted there.

No guarantees of original artwork with any purchases of my books or contributions to me, but that is the only way of there being any possibility of original artwork. Furthermore, it supports my writing, including all the free stories I have already published and that I am about to publish.

Original Artwork for the Fiction of Liberate Liberty: What It Is and What It Can Be

Prose stories do not require artwork. However, prose stories struggle to find an audience without it. And what good is a story if no one is reading it? So here is the latest on the forthcoming artwork for the forthcoming tales from Liberate Liberty—here is what it will be as of now and here is what it can be if enough people support the stories.
I commissioned original artwork for both Mortal Gods: Ignition and Winning through Losing. The total of four separate commissions cost a significant amount of money. But it was worth it for those books. I’d like to commission more artwork for forthcoming stories (more of which I will post about this week—including how the first story will begin its serial publication this week or the next) but I need to make sure there is the demand for it.
So as of right now I’m creating the artwork for my latest work. I’m teasing excerpts of some of it above and in the images below. Some of what you see now might be different in its final form. And some of …

The Stought Brothers – Serialized Young Adult Series Coming Soon

Another story I am working on completing is the first story for a potential young adult series called, The Stought Brothers. I will publish the story in its entirety as a serialized story and for free at BarbWire.

I will judge how people respond to it and if it does well enough I may be able to proceed with the series, publishing the next book for sale as an eBook.

The logo you see to the right is the working logo for The Stought Brothers. If it proceeds as a series, then there probably would be an entirely new design along with cover art for the book.

Here is the general outline for The Stought Brothers.

Two brothers, 16- and 18-years old (a sophomore and a senior in high school), travel the world with their parents. Their father is a highly skilled doctor specializing in brain surgery, and he travels the world under the sponsorship of his church so he can provide life-saving operations across the globe. He takes his family with him wherever he travels. During their travels, the bro…

Mortal Gods: “HVT”: Reality Intertwined with Fiction

Mortal Gods: “HVT” is nearing its conclusion. And as it does, I’ve collected a few news items that somehow relate to at least one part of the story.
“HVT” is not about any real-life event or organization (past, present, or in the future), but it does include elements of reality and it presents a unique solution to a real-life challenge within the confines of the fictional Mortal Gods universe. Read the story to find out more. And as you do, reference the following news items to help you think about the ideas and plot the story presents.
